Get ready with me....Prom night! ♥

Hey girlies...and guys,
Tonight is the night!
 It's the day of my prom and I'm going to show you guys how I got ready.
My prom started at 7:30pm, so I started getting ready around 4:00pm
First I had a nice hot shower, threw on my onesie then began to get into the prom experience despite the horrible weather.
I decided to start with my hair because I didn't want my makeup to start looking really shiny because I have quite oily skin especially with the heat from the straighteners.
In my head I have 3 bundles, the longest length is 18 inches then a 12 inch then 8 inches, just so it was easier to layer and I wasn't cutting so much hair off. for the front of my hair I was initially going to go with a side part but I didn't want to have a lot of leave out left out so I decided on a centre part, which I also felt was a bit more casual for after the whole prom experience.
My sister did my hair for me and she started by curling my hair from the back forward using straighteners, when she got to the front part of my hair where my part was she used the same technique and curled away from my face.
When she had finished curling my hair we decided on not brushing them out/ finger combing them out until the end just because we were afraid that the curls would not hold well the hold night, in the meantime we used a bit of gel and dax to slick my baby hairs.



For my make-up I wasn't really sure, I had not actually planned what I wanted my make-up to look like so my sister pretty much just made it up as she went along.
If you saw my other post on the preparation of prom you would have already seen what my shoes look like and where we got the whole colour scheme from.
For my eye shadow I used my 120 palette and used mostly blues and teals and also a bit of purple to help with blending it out, I also used some glittery silver in the inner tear duct to kind of brighten up the eye.
After that I applied some false lashes, just because I believe that false lashes are a necessity for prom!
For my lips I decided on a simple nude colour just because I thought it would be too much with the bright blue eye shadow so I thought I would tone it down.

The finished look!

Highlight of the night was I won Best heels at prom, I was so surprised and excited just cause it was so unexpected. This was like a reward for my pain, cause when I got home my feet were killing me.

If you would like to see more pictures of my prom night you can check out my instagram here.
Look out for my lookbook post next week

Prom Preparation | Dress, Shoes & Clutch

Hey everyone,

Yes as you can figure from the title it's that time of the year again for school leavers, I'm not really sure if any other year group have prom but I have soo much to do before this special day.


For my dress, my sister (that some of you may know as FashionSquash) volunteered to make it for me which I was extremely happy about because finding a dress that would look exactly the way I wanted it was bound to be difficult.
Deciding on how and what I wanted my dress to look like took close to a month, cause to me it was all about getting it PERFEECCCT!

So I got on to Pinterest, (my love!) and created a secret board and named it 'Prom ideas', I gathered up a whole lot of ideas for what I wanted to look like at prom (this board is now unlocked, opened whatever you want to call it so you can check it out here) and this helped me to get inspiration on what I wanted my dress to look like.

 I decided on a short dress because I'm quite short any ways so a long dress would just make me look like I've been stumped into the ground. LOL! I also decided on a non stretchy material don't really know why but the fabric I used was called a Satin Duchesse and it was relatively cheap I think it was £4.80 per metre and I think I got 4 or 5 metres which ended up being way more than I needed.

It took us like a week and a half to complete the dress just because my sister was quite busy in between that with completing her final collection and other stuff but I think if she just got it over and done with and didn't start and stop for days it could have been done in 3 to 5 days.


 Finding shoes was so difficult because all they have out now are strappy, heeled sandals and I wanted some platform, bright coloured heels which I just couldn't find. Coming up towards prom as time was getting shorter I still had no shoes, no clutch and an ufinished master piece. 

So I think it was like a week before prom and me and my sister went Oxford Street to see what we could find and to my surprise I had no luck, however I did manage to purchase a pair of earrings for prom.

Then I had my aunty over and she suggested that I go on to eBay, at first my initial thought was 'eurgh I don't want no cheap rubbish where the heel just gone snap off as soon as I try bruk it down' but as time was running out and I was going to have to wait for delivery, I got on to eBay and what do you know I found a pair of heels that I loved! Ordering them was quite risky because they said they would come a day before prom which I was quite worried about just in case they got here and didn't fit or weren't to my expectations.

I got the heels in a size 5 and a half and they cost £15.99 which I thought was pretty good.
Check them out here!


Going shopping with my sister to Oxford Street I also tried to hunt down a clutch I already knew that I wanted a sparkly/glittery box clutch which was kind of stressing me out because I could not find one anywhere where I thought it was worth it, price wise.

Again, aunty to the rescue she told me how she saw a really nice box clutch on TK Maxx and because me, my aunty and my sister all have the same fashion sense I could tell that I was going to love it. The clutch cost £14.99 and had a delivery price of £3.99 which I thought was a little pricey but in my desperation I just bought it especially because I didn't have time to waste.
Check out TK Maxx for the Satin Box Clutch

Stay tuned for my next post 'Get ready with me....Prom night!' that should be up next Thursday, I'm going to try and put up a new post every Thursday I can't promise anything but I will try my best!
